The Q&A Archives: Training Honeysuckle

Question: Will honeysuckle grow up fishing line attached to a pole? I would like to quit having to tie it up.

Answer: Honeysuckle is a vigorously growing twining vine that needs to be trained when it's young. Once it's headed in the right direction, subsequent vines will support themselves by intertwining among the established vines. Fishing line might be too slippery for the vines. Why not try heavier wire, or even a wooden trellis for support?
